Chai Tea Slow Cooker Style
7 cups water
1/2 tbsp ground ginger (or slice up some fresh, keep the cold at bay)
5 green cardomon pods, split open
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
2 black peppercorns
couple of dashes white pepper (this added a nice kick)
couple of dashes of nutmeg
4 black tea bags (I used decaf)
1/3 cup sugar
1 to 1 1/2 cup milk
1) Add water and spices to the slow cooker/crockpot. Cook for 8 hours.
2) Add the tea bags and the sugar, steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and then strain liquid through a sieve. Add milk. Enjoy! Store in the fridge, I use an old milk jug. It is also very nice cold over ice.
|I know, it looks like a regular cup of tea.....but it is so much more!|
